Intermountain Medical Center’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is a 48-bed unit delivering state-of-the-art care to an intricate population of newborns, varying in acuity from full-term infants in transition to severely ill term and pre-term infants. We specialize in caring for extremely low birth weight infants born in our hospital or transported from other facilities.
Our team of neonatologists, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, respiratory therapists, pharmacists, dietitians, developmental therapists, and other specialists work closely together with parents to provide optimal outcomes and save the lives of babies born early and those born with complications.
We are family-centered in our care
We welcome parents at the bedside 24/7 and strive to involve them in their child’s care so they are experts about their baby when it’s time to go home. Our NICU has many features designed to make the unit more comfortable for moms, dads, and families. We have private, twin, or triplet rooms that provide privacy for families and their little ones, as well as a chance to bring in personal touches like photos or toys.
Privacy and quiet is better for babies. Babies who are sick and premature need quiet rest with age-appropriate interactions to heal and grow like they would have in their mother's womb.
